We are very proud to announce that our guest speaker this year is BRANT GARVEY Elite Athlete & Professional Speaker See the NEWS page for more information.
This is a one day Grand Fondo Style cycling event for all levels of cyclists and fitness, from junior riders to the over 50’s, from the novice rider to the keen enthusiast, for anyone embarking on a fitness campaign and for anyone just wanting to have a fun day.
We would love you to join in, either as an individual rider or a team of 4 - why not get some mates, family or work colleagues together. You can go as a casual rider or “race it” - it's up to you!
The aim of the day is to get the community together and to raise awareness for mental health, providing an opportunity to laugh, exercise, socialize, talk, laugh again, create new friendships and meet new people. Also, we hope to bring the city to the country and give the city cyclist an opportunity to explore and experience what the country has to offer, all in an afternoon. You will experience unique country hospitality, no frills event, just a good long ride, or short if you like, in the wheatbelt.
You can choose one of three courses which meander through the District of Moora and Watheroo, touching on the beautiful Berkshire Valley. There is no Single Track, but you will experience high quality gravel roads.
The course is predominantly gravel, if choosing a road bike, ride with caution as surface can be loose or scattered small pot holes/corrugations. MTB bike is good but can be a bit heavy going, a cyclocross bike is light which makes for easy riding. Be mindful that too heavy a bike/tire combination will make it a grueling ride - do your homework. Cycle Bespoke have great bike preparation advice on the Pricing and Registration page.

So choose your ride and join the Gravel Grinder in October.
This year the Gravel Grinder is proudly supporting Wheatbelt Men's Health.
